Here’s a real insider tip on how to train your mind to work for you. Use television as a tool to help you notice how quickly the world can grab your mind’s attention. You turn on TV, and within a minute or two you are cast under a spell – you become completely involved with the news or the reality show being broadcast. You emotionally react, without giving any personal thought, to what you see.
The next time that you turn on the television set, take a moment to declare yourself an uninvolved bystander. Deliberately disassociate yourself from what you are about to watch. Detach! Do this watchfully. Don’t let the television producers manipulate you into thinking and feeling as they want you to.
Use this simple, powerful strategy every time you turn on TV for the next week or two. If you do, you will find that you have a new command over your mind. It waits for you to tell it what you want it to think and feel. It no longer feels gripped hypnotically by what the world will tell it to do.
This empowering exercise helps set you free so you can place the inner man (you) in control of the outer world in which you live. You’re now a step closer to creating your life as you want it to be.
